Have been keeping the ANSS heliplot page for the 50 states up on my desktop 24/7.  Last night and this morning, all the heliplots were pretty quiet except for Washington, Nevada, Ohio, Texas and maybe a couple of others.  Some were off line, such as New York and southeastern Alaska. 

However, this evening virtually all the states are showing more intense activity, with few exceptions.   Wonder what gives, if anything?  It will be interesting to check back in the morning.

Posting this morning's heliplot for Yellowstone:

Also, Can someone explain what is happening in Nevada?  This has been going on for a while now:

This was a BIG one!!

Desperate tourists crowd outside Greek and Turkish airports after cutting short their holiday following quake that killed two as travel firms 'tell people to sleep on sun loungers for rest of their vacation'

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4716232/Magnitude-6-7-quake-hits-Turkey-USGS.html

Powerful magnitude-6.7 quake has struck off the south west coast of Bodrum, Turkey, triggering a tsunami
Two male tourists from Sweden and Turkey killed on Greek holiday island of Kos when a bar ceiling collapsed
Tsunami waves flooded beachfront hotels along the Aegean coast with Bodrum and Marmaris worst affected
Parts of a Kos mosque collapsed into the town square, while the tremors were also felt on Crete and Rhodes

Rescuers were this morning urgently searching for any more victims trapped under rubble with hundreds hurt
Tens of thousands of tourists have spent the night outside after being told not to re-enter their hotels
Collapsed pylons in Bodrum sparked huge electrical fires while power was out across much of the region 
Tourists told how their hotels were 'shaking like a jelly' before the tsunami sent people fleeing low ground
